How do I stop my hot water tank from leaking? It will not stop dripping from the threaded pvc drain at the bottom of the tank. Do I just need a new one of those fittings? If I turn it too tight, it leaks.... If I loosen it, It leaks... no happy medium. Thanks!

I had this happen to me the night before a house full of guests was to arrive. Replace it with a decent brass valve that is rated for hot water service.
